Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) was a painter, sculptor and ceramist. He made a fundamental contribution to the art of the 20th century by developing shape and colour as an expression values.

It was only in 1872 that he took the Parisian stockbroker Paul Gauguin, who was born on the 7.6.1848, due to Claude-Emile Schuffenecker the approach to painting. He began collecting the works of the Impressionists and studied painting at the Colarossi Academy. He met Pissarro and Cézanne and worked with them, and exhibited with the Impressionists. In Pont-Aven he met Bernard, in Paris on Degas and the brothers Van Gogh. In 1890, Gauguin decided to emigrate, sold his paintings and embarked on the 4.4.1891 to Tahiti. In 1895, he was a single father for his five children, his wife which was a Danish woman and had married him in 1873, finally leaves his home. The following eight years in the South Pacific are again influenced by illness and financial problems that weigh so heavily that he wants to return to Paris. But his patrons in France, recommended him not to destroy the South Sea painter myth.

The pictures, which he regularly sent his art dealer Vollard show an exotic world of foreign culture and seemingly happy, people living at ease: the long-lost paradise. Full colour intensity, and beauty is his late work created in Tahiti that leaves no hint of Gauguin's painful years until his death on 05.08.1903 in Atuona Hiva Oa in the Marquesas Islands on Dominique.

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.

The style of Impressionism that emerged in French painting in 1870 owes its name to the Claude Monet's landscape 'Impression, Soleil Levant'. After initial refusal it began a true triumphant advance.

Such painters as Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Edouard Manet, Auguste Renoir and others created motifs from everyday life, urban and landscape scenes in a bright, natural light.

Impressionism can be seen as a reaction to the academic painting. The emphasis was not on content with its strict rules of painting structure, but on the object as it appears at any given moment, in an often random cut out. The reality was seen in its whole color variety in natural lighting. The studio painting was replaced by the open-air painting.

The brightening of the palette and the dissolution of firm contours was accompanied by a new way of handling with color. Often, the colors were no longer mixed on the palette but side by side on the canvas so that the final impression lies in the eye of the beholder with a certain distance. In "Pointillism", (with such painters as Georges Seurat or Paul Signac) this principle was carried to the extreme.

Outside France, Impressionism was taken up by such painters as Max Slevogt, Max Liebermann and Lovis Corinth in Germany, and by James A. M. Whistler in the United States.

In sculpture, the impressionism expressed itself only conditionally. In the works of Auguste Rodin, who is considered one of the main representatives, you can see a resolution of the surfaces in which the play of light and shadow is included in the artistic expression. Degas and Renoir created sculptures as well.
